I don't like it for two reasons:

   * CInclude is not the only way to inject external content
     into the pipeline. Alternatively, you can use:

      - xinclude, include transformers
      - aggregate
      - file, xmldb, blob, etc source
      - sql transformer
      - i18n transformer

     Should all of the above be modified to have same features?

   * It mixes concerns. Task of CInclude is to inject external
     content into the pipeline, not to process it. If you want
     to do some processing, do it as a next step (or previous
     step). Otherwise, we can keep its functionality growing and
     end up with JavascriptXSLTCIncludeTransformer, which in
     addition to inclusion, will filter XML through Javascript
     and process output with XSLT :)

I see comment / namespace removal and indenting as a single task - lexical 
normalization of xml :-)
